I cut'n'pasted the NOTICE into each of the files, then wrapped them in 
the appropriate delimiters to render them as xml or Properties comments 
as appropriate.

You are correct that the skeletons of the two xml files were 
auto-generated based on my input, but they currently contain my attempt 
at a NetBeans attribution for the following reasons:

** project.xml is my adaptation of the default file created by NetBeans 
for a Free Form project that does not already have one. The default 
auto-generated file does NOT contain a NetBeans copyright notice, but it 
does reference netbeans schemas and is, in my naive opinion, implicitly 

** nb-project.xml was created by me from scratch, but based on my 
examination of the xml files NetBeans auto-generates to support a 
project which needs to be built under a different jdk to the one 
netbeans is running under (aka the default platform). I felt I had used 
sufficient look-and-feel in my file that it would be honest to 
acknowledge the work done by the NetBeans developers on the originals.

In other words, I believe my intent is correct... but I am not confident 
I have achieved my objective. I hoped you guys could put my work right 
if necessary.
